I like the slightly unusaul shapes and the smaller cases. I have small wrists so anything over 36mm looks like an alarm clock.
Anyway I was looking on ebay USA and came acrocc vintage watches. I was taken by the shapes. These watches have soul and character. Also they are smaller than the modern watches.
I came across a Gruen Veri-thin which looked in mint condition. I managed to get the seller down to just over $130.00. I dont know if I paid too much but I liked the watch and the condition was great. It came without a strap so I fitted a blue genuine Ostrich leg strap.
I just love this watch and cant wait to get my nest Gruen. jack

Nice looking watch. Like your bold choice for a strap.

Jack—I see why it caught your eye. Looks great! think $130 for a watch that you love & is in such stunning condition is never too much, especially when you consider that’s about the price just to have one serviced.
